MONUMENTAL MEGALITHS. Large dolmens dot the landscape of the Galilee, Golan, and Transjordan. These table-like monuments, which consist of large horizontal stones laid across upright, vertical stones, likely served as funerary structures, though the Israelites possibly imagined them to be the beds of Amorite giants. These dolmens, near Gamla, probably date to the Early or Intermediate Bronze Age.
